Speaking of weddings, last month I had the absolute pleasure of attending the “I dos” of friend Andi of My Beautiful Adventures and her Argentinian husband, Lucas, in Buenos Aires. These world travelers posed for their engagement photos in the city’s famous La Boca barrio. I tried not to get in photographer Kirsten Alana‘s way, but I did snap some B roll footage of the happy couple. Two local kids ran after Andi, giggling, and tons of tourists stopped to watch the shoot. It really did feel like we were with an A-list star!

While the professionals did their thing, I walked around La Boca, the tiny neighborhood’s famously bright colors shining in the sun. The whole thing (at least the tourist part) takes up only about two blocks, but it’s a hot destination for out-of-towners because of its distinctly Argentinian feel. Lucas rushed us out of there the second the sun started to set — in case you thought La Boca was safe at night. Of course, my friends headed there for steak later that evening. After reading their harrowing accounts, I was sort of OK that I missed them! (I repeat: rule of thumb, when the souvenir peddlers, and there are plenty of ’em, start to pack up, it’s time to go.) I tried to find these stories, but I was unable to — Ayngelina, Rease, Stephanie, feel free to send!
UPDATE: Rease sent hers. Enjoy! No Taxi For You

These La Boca engagement pictures turned out so beautifully — I highly recommend taking a look!
